Policies And Info
We have a limited supply of soft shoes to purchase at the studio in all sizes.
We love To See You
The studio generally opens 15 minutes prior to the first class of the day. Dancers should be dressed and ready by the start time of class. Regular attendance is imperative and being present for the class warm-up is required for their safety. When a dancer misses classes or is consistently late, both the dancer and the class fall behind.
Tuition is paid through the ERB website Parent Portal upon registering for Auto Pay. The semester is split up into 4 monthly payments which are billed the first of the month. A $20 registration fee per family is added to the first month of billing. Tuition payments for the semester may also be paid in person with check or cash prior to the first day of class. Please contact us in regards to making payments in person. If your child is starting after the semester has begun, you will be prorated at the time of their first class.
Makeup classes are provided as a courtesy when a class is missed. Please communicate with the teacher as to which class would be best.
For new students wanting to try a class before enrolling may do so. The $20 fee can be applied towards tuition. Arrangements must be made with the director before trying a class.
Class & Location
Please see the list of all closures under the Calendar Page.
On occasion, it may be necessary to engage the services of a guest or substitute teacher in the place of an absent instructor. We reserve the right to do so when the need warrants. In these circumstances, we resolve to place the most experienced teachers in our program.
WEATHER OR EMERGENCY
If the Anchorage School District cancels school due to weather or natural disaster, we do not necessarily close. We will announce our decision in a email as soon as possible. Please check your emails on these days so you will be informed. Often, since the majority of our classes begin at 4:00, the hazardous situation may have been significantly mitigated later in the day. If we remain open, parents have the option of driving to classes, or not, given their commuting circumstances. If the ASD announces a delayed start, we will likely remain open for our mid-day and after school classes. We will make every effort to arrange an alternative class for a make-up lesson. “Emergency Make-ups” may be offered on an alternate weekday, or a Saturday afternoon.
In the event of bad weather announcements will be made through our business Facebook page as to whether we will be open.
